美国联邦航空管理局（Federal Aviation Administration）周一公布了有关无人驾驶飞机（俗称无人机）的最终规定，此举有望为空运消费者包裹打开大门。
Constellation Research首席分析师兼副总裁L.Nicole France解释说：“远程ID对于识别无人驾驶飞机在公共或任何空域的位置、高度、速度、飞行路径和性能特征至关重要。”。
原文：Final rules governing unmanned aircraft, commonly known as drones, were released Monday by the Federal Aviation Administration, a move expected to open the door for delivery of consumer packages by air.
The rules establish minimum standards for safety so drones can fly over populated areas and at night, under certain conditions.
According to an FAA statement, the rules come at a time when drones represent the fastest-growing segment in the entire transportation sector. Currently there are more than 1.7 million drone registrations and 203,000 FAA-certificated remote pilots, the agency stated.
"These final rules carefully address safety, security and privacy concerns while advancing opportunities for innovation and utilization of drone technology," U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao said in the statement.
A cornerstone of the new rules is a requirement that drones flying over populated areas include remote identification.
"Remote ID is essential to identify the location, altitude, velocity, flight path, and performance characteristics of unmanned drones in public or any airspace," explained L. Nicole France, a principal analyst and vice president at Constellation Research.
"That airspace awareness ensures safe operation for other aircraft and people on the ground," she told TechNewsWorld. "It ensures that the FAA, including air traffic control, national security agencies, and local law enforcement can also distinguish compliant aircraft and operations from those that may be dangerous or illegal."
